You may have been familiar with the old site at which became dated. At Friday's meeting on Canada's Archives: A New Blueprint Laura Wilson, Chair of the CCA Board of Directors announced the soft launch of the new site which is in continuing development. Explore, but be sure to go to the site without the www preface - that leads to the old site.

They need to rename the page: when I bookmarked it, it came up as "Home" -- a totally meaningless title if one has a long list of bookmarks. Fortunately, Chrome let me change it on-the-fly, so now I'll be able to find it in my Canadian Genealogy bookmark folder.

But so far that's my only complaint!
